In order to facilitate start-up companies and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to match with and raise equity funding from accredited investors, ValPro, a boutique financial services company based in New Delhi, has launched a unique web-based deal-enabling platform 'Enablers'.
The platform (enablersinvestment.com) will help entrepreneurs to connect with and raise funds from investors.
"We put in rigorous efforts in mapping opportunities to align with investor interests. We ensure that only those opportunities which are genuine, get listed on our site," said ValPro Director Neha Khanna at the launch event on Wednesday.
While start-ups and SMEs will have to pay Rs 30,000 for listing their projects on the website, ValPro will not charge any fee from investors.
Companies will also have to pay 2 per cent of the funds raised after successfully completing the process with investors.
'Enablers' has already reviewed 200 companies till date, of which 25-30 companies have been shortlisted as potential candidates for investment. Key sectors to which the companies belong include waste management, mobile, healthcare wearables, fashion and lifestyle, e-commerce, education and mobile advertising.
The platform also has 26 investors now, comprising of both individual investors (18) and institutional investors (8).
